The Baekje Cultural Festival originated in 1955 when Buyeo-gun residents established an altar in Buyeo Mountain Fortress and offered a memorial service to the Three loyalist of Baekje.

It has been held simultaneously in Daejeon, Gongju, and Buyeo since the 20th anniversary of 1974, and has been held in Gongju for one year after the decision of the Baekje Cultural Festival Improvement Committee in 1979.

This local festival is organized by Buyeo-gun or Gongju-si and organized by the Baekje Cultural Promotion Committee to have the characteristics of traditional cultural festivals.​

More than 60 events will be held as major events, including the National Sijo Gyeongchang Contest, the Palace Contest, the Fireworks Festival, traditional folk performances, Baekje history and culture experiences, and academic seminars.

In particular, King Munju's Ungjinseong's Cheondo Ceremony and the disguise parade of Baekje Culture, where more than 5,000 people participate, is a central event that reproduces and inherits Baekje culture.​
